About me

I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in North Carolina and Wisconsin with over 5 years of experience working as a therapist and case manager for teens and families in the justice system and Veterans. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, involvement in the justice system, long term incarceration, substance abuse, ADHD, PTSD, life satisfaction, and various forms of abuse and trauma.

My counseling style is very supportive and empowering but I will also always be transparent with what I believe you need to hear. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I seek to reduce the stigma and stress associated with accessing therapy. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, narrative, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. I will work hand in hand with you to develop a treatment that works for you as a unique human being with unique needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Amazing guy and really knows his stuff. Genuinely has been such an incredible help with both mental health things and simply just being a supportive person

Thank you Ryan!

Written on Jan 06, 2023 after therapy with Ryan for 8 months on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

He really understands what it is I am trying to convey and if he doesn't immediately he will very shortly. He also really helped me in understanding my own needs and doesn't tell me what decisions to make. He recommends stuff and explains his reasoning. He really is logical in breaking things down.

I have participated in therapy for years and never had such a caring therapist who understood me and what I needed help most with in life. Ryan truly is a blessing and I'm grateful for betterhelp that it connected me with him.
